March 13, 1918
Arose 7 A.M.
Went to sick bay at 8 o’clock. Dr. Spencer gave me an examination with stethoscope and determined that I had a temporary slight attack of cardiac trouble. Said to stay in my bunk and take things easy until I get better. To go to Sick Bay after every meal for medicine. Have not had any food since 10th.
Ships scattered at 9 P.M. this date. Ran into a storm; ship pitching and rolling all night.
